Top 10 Free Oculus Quest 2 Games

Play with your new Oculus Quest 2 without breaking the bank

This holiday season the Oculus (Meta) Quest 2 is the go to gift. Just like any other game console of the past the Oculus Quest 2 promises hours of fun, a wide range of games to play and a new way to connect with friends/family! Plus, if you didn't know the Oculus Quest 2 has the added benefit of being a virtual reality headset. Meaning all of those hours of fun come from being fully immersed in virtual worlds, interacting with games like you would when interacting with the real world.

The only problem is that these games and experiences can get expensive quickly. So, whether you're a parent buying for multiple kids, a college student on a budget or someone just looking for some inexpensive fun, here's a list of free Oculus Quest 2 games just for you!

Rec Room

Every Monday the XpertVR team meets in Rec Room, in our virtual “Clubhouse”. In this space we have a poker table, ping pong, whiteboards, board room and even a hot tub! Being able to build these spaces is great for team meetings or hanging out with friends but the best part is building games. 

Similar to games like Roblox or Minecraft, Rec Room allows you to build whole worlds straight from your imagination. Then you can share your creations with the world and friends can join in VR, from their computer or even from their phones!

Half + Half

Looking for a relaxing and safe place to hang out with friends. The art style of Half & Half always calms us down. Not to mention all of the childhood memories games like hide & seek bring back. The best part is everyone is a fun looking avatar and if you don’t know someone their speech comes out as a garbled alien language. This keeps the environment relaxing and safe as you don’t have to deal with any trolls.

Tripp

Looking for something even more calming then Half & Half or a virtual space to continue your daily meditation practice? Tripp is the best app on the market with a whole library of environments to teleport to, different guided meditation techniques and even an ability to edit your own.

PokerStars VR

When the world’s best online poker room creates a virtual reality experience, you’d better believe they’re going to do it right! This immersive game mixes all the fun of real-world poker with cutting-edge visuals and design to transport you to the frontline of VR entertainment. Play poker and socialize with friends while making all kinds of fun 3D props appear!

VRChat

VRChat offers an endless collection of social VR experiences by giving the power of creation to its community. Whether you’re looking for new VR experiences or have an idea of your own, VRChat is the place to be. Similar to Rec Room VRChat doesn’t require VR but it definitely makes the experience better. The main difference between the two is that VRChat is focused more towards a mature audience whereas Rec Room is built for a younger audience. That said both can be enjoyed by any age, we just recommend parents set proper age restrictions for kids in VRChat.

Altspace VR

Rec Room sound too young for you but VRChat sound too unprofessional? Then AltspaceVR is the place for you. AltspaceVR is Microsoft’s take on the Metaverse and is where many professionals gather for business meetings and conferences. Plus it comes with world creation tools that allow you to make your own worlds and games!

Bait!

One of the best fishing games on the Oculus Quest 2 and it’s free! There are some in-app purchases but you can start to build out your fishing career and make friends with locals around the lake all for free. Enjoy not only fishing but following the Bait story and connecting online with the over 3 million other players of Bait.

Spatial

Are you interested in NFT’s or cultural events? Then Spatial is the app for you! 

Spatial is dedicated to helping creators and brands build their own spaces in the metaverse to share culture together. They empower users to leverage their beautiful spaces to share eye popping content, build a tight knit community, and drive meaningful sales of their creative works and products. We like to use Spatial as our professional meeting space but looking at the future metaverse we are also excited to see Spatial adding the ability to mint NFTs.

Traveling While Black

Traveling While Black is a cinematic VR experience that immerses the viewer in the long history of the restriction of movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in communities across the US.

Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams and Emmy Award-winning Felix & Paul Studios’ film transports you to historic Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington DC. The viewer shares an intimate series of moments with several of the patrons of Ben’s as they reflect on their experiences of restricted movement and race relations in the U.S. 

Bigscreen

Bigscreen turns your Oculus Quest 2 into a full sized movie theatre. The app gives you tons of different theatre types to choose from and allows you to watch 3D movies with friends, play your favorite PC video games on a huge screen or just hang out in social VR chat rooms!

In conclusion

In closing, the Oculus Quest 2 is currently the best wireless headset on the market for the general public and has an amazing library of consumer apps. That said these apps can get expensive quickly so hopefully going through this list you got some ideas for more budget friendly VR games and experiences!
